Rubio Reason for Legalizing Illegals: “They Are Driving on Our Streets Without a Driver’s License”
Cybercast News Service ^ | April 19, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Sen. Marco Rubio (R.-Fla.), one of eight senators who have crafted legislation that would put illegal aliens on a path to U.S. citizenship, explained in a Senate floor speech yesterday that one of the reasons he wants to do this is that he believes illegal aliens are currently driving on U.S. roads without drivers licenses and auto insurance and his bill would encourage them to get licenses and buy insurance.

Rubio explained that under his bill, ilegal aliens who “have committed serious crimes” will be deported. However, the proposal will apparently not deem as a serious crime the habit of routinely driving without a driver's license. …

There you have it. The perfect reason for letting everyone into the U.S. Sure works when we are ALLOWING THE TERRORISTS IN...

Sigh.

Maybe we should be deporting these illegal aliens instead of letting them drive on our streets??? What makes an illegal alien even want to get a driver’s license since there is no punishment for not doing so in the first place?

Rubio: The Hispanic for Hispanics, not for America!

There you go then, there is the reason to give citizenship to 40,000,000 million lawbreakers!

When they are stopped and found to be illegals driving without a license, then use asset forfeiture to seize the vehicle and deport the driver to the country of origin. Ineligible to apply for citizenship for 20 years. Put some damn teeth and consequences in the enforcement.

They Are Driving on Our Streets Without a Driver’s License”

1. Driver’s license to board a plane
2. Driver’s license to register to vote
3. Driver’s license to open a checking account
4. Fill in the blank.

Hey Jackass Rubio, does your new law include punishing Illegals for having Fake IDs(Felony)?

How about for using a fake ID to acquire Medical services(Felony)?

How about for using a fake ID to acquire any Social Services(Felony)?

This would include much more than half of the illegal aliens in the country today.

I'll bet you that his bill doesn't include any of these felonies as punishable.

Rubio is more interested in granting Amnesty to his brethren than he is concerned about the rule of law.

Illegal aliens do have licenses. They are illegal licenses.
Mostly with stolen identities.

Its like cute boy Rubio called on Satan and asked him to get him into the WH as POTUS and then Satan replied to him : ‘No problem, but I want immigration reform first(or in return), so here is what you must do to get your wish.....

This sounds like another Bush-McCain immigration reform disaster.

I think that was Schumer’s plan. Either he gets his immigration plan, or he takes out Rubio for 2016. He knew conservatives would never sit still for what Rubio is doing.

Where is a picture of someone banging their head against a brick wall? I would be happy with even the emoticon or whatever that little icon is called.

I just get so frustrated when an issue is really so simple and the politicians make it so complicated. Just enforce the laws!! Don’t reward criminals!! What really gets me is these politicians know better, they just have an agenda and think we are stupid enough to go along with their craziness. Many people are that stupid but I hope enough are aware that amnesty will not happen, I hope and pray people will wake up before it is too late.

Rubio has lost any and all credibility on this issue, and damaged his overall credibility as a “conservative” greatly.

He is not the future of the Republican party if it’s supposed to be conservative.

"Rubio explained that under his bill, illegal aliens who “have committed serious crimes” will be deported."

Oh really? What about the MILLIONS of them who have been committing vote fraud to put people like Barack Obama and Harry Reid in office? I've called Rubio's office multiple times to urge making cross checking voter registration roles a condition of this "pathway" garbage. No response has been offered and no comments have been made.

He's out there selling the bill Schumer approved, but we aren't going to see it until its passed and we can learn what's in it.
